Course No. ED467d, ED567d
Students see right through us when we’re not being ourselves. Standing in our authentic self is the personal foundation of good teaching, no matter what level or subject or across all personality types. In this course for all teachers K-12, we will draw upon the work of two noted educator/writers, Parker Palmer, and researcher/author, Brene Brown, to help participants explore what may be getting in the way of being fully themselves. You will learn steps that you can take to reclaim your personal power. A choice of Brene Brown books will run less that $15 used on Amazon.

This course exceeded my expectations. One of many great things about Brenda McKinney's classes is they are always the perfect intersection between what I need personally to be my best, and what I need professionally to be the best teacher I can be. Each of her courses is carefully crafted to provide a wealth of materials to select from, the assignments are thought-provoking and relevant, and her feedback is off the charts. She's supportive, encouraging, timely, thought-provoking, and shares herself freely so that you feel you have her right there with you. I can't recommend her classes highly enough.
